also if you live pay check to pay check , the FDIC insurance may not re-imburse as fast as you need

I hope no one was fooled into thinking that the "bailout" or "rescue" plan recently passed is going to save the stock market...


For the next few weeks - months, this is going to be a volatile time for the economy. There will be a recession/depression. These dips in the dow are nothing compared to what we're going to see...


I think there are people that thought the bailout would immediately save the economy. Our reps pretty much put it on the same level as the second coming of christ, we were saved if it passed and doomed if it didnt. The bailout will do nothing but add to our huge national debt.

The VIX (CBOE volatillity measure) spiked above 50. And for whoever was asking Nasdaq and S&P 500 are both down harder than the DOW percentage wise. The Nas has already breached 2000 and kept going past few weeks and the S&P is around 60 points above 1000.

Now if the S&P touched 1000 this week that would be something.


The S&P is now down to 1049 - you say if it touched 1000 this week that would be something but can you elaborate on that for me please as I have no idea what that would lead to/mean. Many thanks.

Oh look at it burn. Let's all gather around it to warm ourselves up since that's the only useful thing it'll ever have.

Seems somebody forgot to pack the parachute . . . down more than 400 and closing in on 9900.

Wow.

I can now officially plan my retirement for 2053.

I'll be 97.

My guess is anywhere near 9400-9500, they would halt trading.

Can some one explain why Gold and silver are at an all time low?

Called market manipulation, that's why commodity prices are so low.

"Down, down, down,.....and the flames went higher. and it burns, burns, burns....".
Watching the Dow I can't get that song out of my head. Hope things settle down soon.

Today is the precursor to the huge collapse tomorrow, put on your hard hats and choke the chicken as the bombs fall.
